Welcome to the first day of our 6th annual Triple Giving Tuesday Campaign! From November 1 through International Giving Tuesday on November 29, you will have your donation TRIPLED thanks to generous OMF donors who will be matching all donations up to a total of $500,000.
This is a special year because we are raising funds for an entirely new arm of research: small clinical treatment trials!* If promising, small clinical treatment trials will lead to larger clinical trials on existing drugs and new drugs waiting to be released. We know our OMF family needs treatments today. Small clinical trials are the best way to fast-track relief if found effective. Accelerating research is our top priority at OMF. Let’s make this year better than ever by restoring hope and health together.
Will you support our efforts?
Now is the time! Donate today and have your gift TRIPLED:
* Please note, we are still in the planning and development phase of treatment trials. We are not actively recruiting patients for small treatment trials at this time.
Thanks to you, we’ve made incredible strides in collaborative research in the past ten years that have laid the foundation for OMF to move forward with clinical trials.
Since our founding in 2012, we have raised over $37 million to advance research and medical education for ME/CFS, Long COVID and other multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD)!
So far this year, we have already funded over $5.5 million in research activities! We are excited to announce the following list of research activities that we have funded in 2022:
Throughout #TripleGivingTuesday, we will be featuring overviews of select projects. Stay tuned for more information!
Don’t forget, NOW is the time to triple your impact on research!
This #TripleGivingTuesday, generous OMF donors have agreed to TRIPLE match donations up to a total of $500,000. That means when you donate $20, you really donate $60! And you can make a gift any day of the week now through the official worldwide giving day, International Giving Tuesday, on November 29, 2022.

Spread the word!
Encourage your friends and family to join you in creating real impact throughout November by sharing what our mission means to you and why you support our organization (here are some ideas).
Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
